About the property

Spacious 5 bedroom house, 3 bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, large patios

The villa was built in 2004 and has far reaching mountain views. It contains a large lounge and dining area and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave and dishwasher. It has 5 bedrooms (1 double en-suite, 2 twin and 2 singles) and 3 bath/shower rooms. All rooms have access to balcony or terraces. The house has a private pool of 4 by 8 m and a private, secluded garden with large patios. Excellent facilities to relax and enjoy the Mediterranean climate. Underneath the porch there is an outside dining area. Washing machine and tumble dryer are available. The house is located in gated community for optimal privacy and security.

There is a local restaurant in the village where one can enjoy typical Spanish food. Supermarkets, further, restaurants and shops are to be found in the close-by villages of St Pere de Ribes and Canyelles, 5 min down the main road.

Barcelona: Visit Barcelona with its many well known attractions and fabulous restaurants

Ramblas, Sagrada Familia, Gaudi, Boqueria-market, Port Olimpic, Montjuic, FC Barcelona football stadium, Place de Catalunia, Pasei de Gracia, Casa Mila - la Pedrera, Casa Batllo, Museu Picasso, Fundacio Miro, Palau de Musica, Catedral de Barcelona, Ciutat Vella - the old town, Maremagnum, Colombus monument, Zoo, Parc Guell, Tibidabo, and many more.

Enjoy the beach towns Sitges and Villanova: Sitges, at 10 min drive from the villa, is a beautiful small coastal town, known for its beaches, its fabulous boulevard, historical sites, night life and fantastic restaurants of which many are specialised in fish and other seafood. It has for decades been a popular haunt for artists and actors and those that like the finer things in life. Sitges is very much unspoilt and still has pebbled streets, providing a nice contrast from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona. It is also popular for its regular local festivals. The internationally best known are the Carnival in February and the Film festival at the end of the summer.

Villanova, just south of Sitges, is well known for its large and beautiful family beaches, restaurants and shops. Villanova is very much a family hit.

The surroundings: If you want a break from the pool, there is much to see and to do in the area.

Well appreciated attractions are visits to local wine bodegas. The most popular among our guests are the ones to Torres, Codorniu and Freixenet. All at approximately 15 min drive. More adventurous and a bit further is the wine area of the Priorat.

Another hit is a visit to the Monastery of Montserret and its spectacular location in the mountains. A bit further away and less known but well appreciated are the monasteries of Santa Creus and of Santa Maria de Poblet.

For children the adventure parc of Port Aventura is a must at less than an hours drive, close to Tarragona. At Terragona worthwhile a visit is the Roman city, a UNESCO world heritage site.

And wherever one is travelling to, trying out the local Spanish restaurants with their fabulous dishes is a real treat.

A perfect place for a perfect relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

If you want to have a relaxed holiday in a house in Spain close to sea/nice villages/(convenient) stores/nature this is the place to go. I have had a very nice time there, with lots of good food, wine & sun (by the pool). Thanks!

A luxury home from home

  • 5 of 5

A brilliantly well-appointed home-from-home with lots of space for a big family or to share with friends, equipped with everything needed to make your holiday base as carefree as possible. Set in a quiet urbanisation and overlooking a scenic rugged landscape, we relaxed within hours of our arrival and wanted for nothing that wasn't already provided.

Heated pool; multi-level terraces with sunbeds and sunshades; outdoor eating areas; a quiet day room; spacious lounge-diner with TV and wi-fi; garage/utility with washing machine, tumble-dryer and drying rack; kitchen with breakfast table, fridge-freezer, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, cutlery & crockery and dishwasher; downstairs WC & shower room; 4 well-furnished bedrooms (one en-suite, with portable air-con and access to small rear terrace), all with comfortable beds; upper front terrace to 3 smaller rooms; good size family bathroom; shared private gated driveway; secure side gated access.

10 minute drive into Canyelles (for convenience store, supermarket, bakery and pharmacy); 20 minutes into Sitges; 50 minutes to Tarragona (and PortAventura); 40 minutes into Barcelona.

The most delightful base for your own 'please-yourself' holiday!

The villa exceeded our expectations from the listing, was extremely clean and well-maintained, was served by a fantastic local couple who took care of cleaning & linen etc. (friendly English ex-pats).

We enjoyed the wide variety of restaurants in Sitges, and its lovely beach, and the children used the pool every day - sometimes twice!

Wij hebben 6 dagen met 7 vriendinnen in dit fantastische huis gelogeerd. Bij aankomst waren de bedden opgemaakt en de handdoeken lagen heerlijk fris klaar. Het huis was heerlijk schoon en ook het zwembad lag er prachtig bij. Het boek met instructies was compleet en wifi werkt prima. Dit was ons derde verblijf en we komen zeker volgende jaar weer terug.

Het was hier fantastisch !

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben een geweldige week gehad in deze prachtige villa. Het huis bied zeer veel mogelijkheden. Met de 4 terrassen heb je altijd zon , of schaduw , indien gewenst. Daarnaast is het gezellig en praktisch ingedeeld. Alles wat je nodig hebt voor een plezierig verblijf is aanwezig. Wij gaan zeker nog eens terug en kunnen het iedereen aanbevelen. Barcelona en Sitges zijn dichtbij. De mooie wijnhuizen bij Villafranca of Sant Sadurni moet men zeker gaan bezoeken, wat een super tip was ! Wij hebben erg genoten van de excursie en proeverij.

Kortom, wie een verblijf zoekt in de buurt van Barcelona, in het binnenland maar ook dichtbij strand, raden wij deze villa aan. Dank jullie wel voor het verblijf !

Wonderfull stay at Casa Imke

We've had a wonderfull stay at Casa Imke!!

Spacious rooms and bathrooms (3!), fully equiped kitchen. All rooms were very clean. Wifi present.

Very nice terrace (several platforms) and a pool. Good view on the hills.

Casa Imke is in a quiet envirement but close to the beach, supermarket and beach (all about ten to fifteen minutes by car).

We would love to come back!

Thanks very much to the owners Cees and Karin :-)

Spacious holiday house (2004) at a secluded forest location in the hills around Canyelles with far reaching mountain views; only 35 min from Barcelona and only 10 min from the famous beaches of Sitges and Villanova. The location is perfect for those who want to combine the culture of Barcelona, the tranquility of a large private swimming pool (4 x 8 m) and beautiful beaches. Within 15 min reach are the bodegas of Torres, Codorniu or Freixenet. The airport of Barcelona is 30 min away, the airport of Reus (Ryanair) is at 45 min drive. So is Port Aventura.

The beautiful villa is located in a gated community, in the urbanisation of Les Ameriques. In this little village there is a typical Spanish restaurant for enjoyable meals. For children there are playing fields. More amenities including excellent restaurants, supermarkets and shops are only 5 - 15 min drive away.

The house has 5 bedrooms, 3 bath rooms, a fully equipped kitchen and 5 large balconies and patios.

Golf: There are 30 golf courses in Catalunia, of which several close by. The one at Sitges is with only 10 min drive the nearest. The course at El Prat, close the Barcelona airport, is the most famous. In Villanova there is a par 3 course.
